After four failed attempts to lock up police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby decided to drop the charges against the remaining officers. And not only that – it seems that she has moved from the prosecution’s table to the defendant’s table.
That’s because five of the six vindicated officers are taking Mosby to court and suing her.
“OFFICERS WILLIAM PORTER, EDWARD NERO, GARRETT MILLER, LT. BRIAN RICE, AND SGT. ALICIA WHITE ALLEGED DEFAMATION, FALSE ARREST, FALSE IMPRISONMENT, AND VIOLATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AMONG OTHERS.”
In May of 2015, Mosby held a press conference regarding the charges against the police officers.
The press conference was held while Baltimore communities were being burned and looted by “protesters,” and the mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, said that the looters and rioters should have “space to destroy.”
Then, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby tried to utilize that hatred that the activists had for the justice system and the police, reports Conservative Post. She said,
“TO THE PEOPLE OF BALTIMORE AND DEMONSTRATORS ACROSS AMERICA, I HEARD YOUR CALL FOR ‘NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE.’”
She implied that the six officers were guilty, and warned that if she did not get the expected convictions, there would be future civil unrest.
She went on:
“YOUR PEACE IS SINCERELY NEEDED AS I WORK TO DELIVER JUSTICE ON BEHALF OF THIS YOUNG MAN.”
It was clear that her idea of “delivering justice,” had nothing to do with discovering what really happened to Freddie Gray, but is instead about winning convictions against the six accused officers.
The state’s attorney brought charges against the officers that were not supported by the evidence or even probable cause. That’s why, now she is the one being judged.
